Tom Hiddleston Says the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Trailer was ‘Touching’

With Avengers: Infinity War comes a big moment for the MCU, and it’s one laced with change. The film is single-handedly the biggest superhero film to date – it’s truly of epic proportions – but it’s much more than a show of Marvel’s power. It’s an experience we’ve been waiting for and those who play the heroes we’ve grown to love, and loathe, feel that sentiment too.

Tom Hiddleston spoke with The Empire Film Podcast about the film, specifically, his reaction to the trailer.

‘It looks very impressive, doesn’t it? It’s very exciting. I found it quite, and this is an odd thing to say, I found it quite touching because I remember, when I was cast as Loki for the very first time, almost 10 years ago, and Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, called me into his office to say congratulations, and one of the first things he said was, ‘Let me talk to you about Avengers.’ I thought I had just been cast in Thor.’

He went on to say that Feige told him that he wanted to build a fleet of films that could showcase different characters in their own elements. As we all know, the characters mean a lot to MCU fans and the actors are all aware of that too.

‘And he’s told me the dream he had, to build this fleet of films, this Marvel Cinematic Universe that was culminating in Avengers, and suddenly, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded to such extraordinary size that it can encompass and encapsulate so many different characters who people have taken into their hearts and followed and loved. Whether it’s all the people from the Captain America films or the Guardians of the Galaxy films, it’s become so ‘peopled’ now. It’s just so impressive, and I say that almost outside it. And I feel so lucky to be a part of it. That’s why I found it exciting.’

We don’t think it’s odd that Tom finds it touching, in fact, we think it’s important that they’re willing to work as hard as they do to ensure that these characters do touch their fans. It’s not about being powerful and superhuman, it’s about the vulnerability, struggle, and heroism that happens in those every day situations.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4th.
